Sunday Late Afternoon
What a fun and tiring weekend I had! I had high hopes of jumping on here last night to do a little more posting and to hopefully find a blog theme with a little more pizazz than this lovely theme, but when The Prospect asked me to spend Sunday afternoon/evening with him, I was all about the “lazy Sunday with a cute guy” plan.
After a quick butt-kicking strength workout, I showered and guzzled down a strawberry banana protein shake before heading over to The Prospect’s apartment. I honestly could drink one of those bad boys for 2 solid meals a day, it’s just THAT good, and this morning’s shake nearly sent me over the edge. The Prospect doesn’t entirely understand my love for the shake and is convinced I’m head-over-heels with it because it’s nearly identical to a milkshake. What a smart boy. 😉
After our intense protein shake discussion, we got cozy on the couch and cheered on our believed Patriots! One of our biggest issues, or his issue with me, is that I’m anti Tom Brady. As The Prospect puts it, I’m all about Peyton “Big Forehead” Manning, but I was more than happy to drool over adorable little Wes Welker and Stephen Gostkowski.
After watching our boys win, we flipped through the channels and ended up switching back and forth between several movies before I had to head home to get ready for the work week.
Last night I didn’t get that good of a night’s sleep. I think that because I headed home around 9 last night which is usually when I’m crawling into bed, messed me up a little. I kept waking up throughout the night as well which left me wanting to hit snooze a 2nd time this morning, but I sucked it up and went for my workout.
Which was AMAZING. I was able to cover 4.5 miles, which don’t ask me how, because I’m not even sure how I squeezed that in. Must have been my ridiculously childish and dance crazy playlist I ran to.
I’m sorry, but Bieber, Carly Rae and PSY doesn’t exactly make for an easy run. All I wanted to do was dance while I ran! There were a lot of arm wiggles and fist pumps throughout Gangnam Style. I remember the first time my spin instructor played Gangnam Style in one of our classes was an already awful day for me. I literally pouted throughout the entire song until she started fist-pumping. Those damn fist-pumps are more contagious than yawning!
I also threw in a little core work, and by little, I mean it. I was more interested in laying on the floor after my run than actually working out more, so I stuck to several moves.
• 1 minute plank hold, :30 second side planks
• 50 crunches
• 50 heel touches
• 10 leg circles, counterclockwise and clockwise
Easy peasy with a side of a strawberry banana protein shake.
Today’s lunch was a piece-of-cake meal I’ve been craving for a long time now (read: too lazy to make hard boiled eggs so I never made it).
I brought 4 egg whites and half of an avocado to work with me today, and around lunch time, I cut and mixed it together before enjoying on a piece of Ezekiel bread. Since we’re honest with one another, I truthfully tried to fold the bread in half but I ended up with eggs and avocado all over my desk, which is why this sucker turned into an open-faced sandwich.
• 1 Summer Squash
• 1 Zucchini
• 2 Roma Tomatoes
• 1 lb. of Baby Carrots
Instead of using olive oil, I heavily sprayed Olive Oil Pam Spray and tossed salt and pepper into the mix before roasting the veggies for 45 minutes at 450 degrees.
These veggies are a favorite for The Prospect and I, and we’ve recently become jealous when one of us makes a batch and doesn’t share. Eventually we will probably stab one another for the last veggie.
My appetite has been off the walls today(and consequently I’ve felt like a blob of crap) so around quarter of 3 I microwaved a Chocolate Peanut Butter Quest Bar in the microwave for 30 seconds before topping it with 3 TBSP of PB2. These bars do a great job of keeping my appetite at bay for hours, and since I have spinning at 5, I needed something filling to keep me in a good mood until 6:30.
